My Friend!

This card turned out pretty cute, and I thought my photo turned out pretty good!

The gorgeous colors in this are inspired by a bella challenge - here. (Use a bella stamp and be inspired by the picture she provided.)

The layout was inspired by this sketch challenge. (Sketch!)

I used awesome digi paper from this company for the card base. (the awesome distressed brown)

The striped and dot/striped paper are from We R Memory Keepers. The flowers are primas, the brad is a sparkly doodlebug one.

I tried to go with a real "rainbow" effect with everything. The flowers on the adorable bella stamp, the patterned papers, I even hand-wrote the sentiment with my Creative Memories pens to get a rainbow effect there. I used a whole bunch of primas to get the rainbow effect, plus I wanted the flower large to take the place of the star in the original sketch...

I also inked everything... it is me. I still do that a lot. I'm trying to get better about not inking everything in sight, but it's hard ;)

What a cute card Diana and can so sympathise with you about the inking thing. If I don't ink the edges, I chalk them . . . it's obviously a side effect from crafting!

Have a great weekend,
